Quaint motet with nostalgic feel. Rooms are updated with new carpet and paint. Staff is friendly and open to taking care of any of you needs. Park right at your room door makes loading and unloading easy. Nice pavilion to sit outside with a group of friends. Breakfast area could be larger but I hear they are in the process... More

A nice hotel. Staff is very helpful. The pool was very clean and refreshing. We loved it and had so much fun. Breakfast is modest. Rooms are clean but a feel of outdated bed covers and some of the furniture. Location is pretty good. Kind of in the middle of everything. We came to see our daughter playing lead role... More

The room was clean and comfortable, with a fridge and microwave. It's typical 1950's style but updated. The bathroom was a bit small but to be expected for that era. The nostalgic theme is fun. All of the staff were very friendly. Very reasonably priced and conveniently located. I would highly recommend them.

Our room was smoking for my husband. It had a very small restroom but really cute and clean. It is historic or nostalgic and that is why I'm sure. Staff was great and very cute office and good food for breakfast. We would go back and get non-smoking room.

This motel has several banks of rooms. Ours was in a set of rooms at the back of the property where it was quiet. Had a comfortable double bed. There are pictures showing the history of the motel dating back to the 30's. We were told there are three rooms set up in the '50s era but we were in... More

I stay at this hotel frequently. I love the decorations, all of which harken to the hotel's history, old cars and the mystique of Route 66. The rooms are small, but more than adequate for sleeping. I stay there on business trips, so I don't spend a lot of time in my room during the day. The restaurant is very... More

I loved my stay at Rail Haven. I enjoyed the retro feel of the place. The rooms were clean. The staff was amazing! They were all very helpful and polite. They were able suggest places to go for food and entertainment and even printed me out directions.

Stayed here twice, will stay here again. Try to get the rooms with the tail fin beds. Dog friendly. Excellent breakfast for the value. Free newspaper. The staff takes great pride in the cleanliness and presentation of the facility. Staff gives good advice where to go or order in for dinner.

There was a lot to like at the Route 66 Rail Haven--and a few things I would have left in the past. You do feel immersed in the nostalgic "Mother Road" feel of the past. Gas pump and 1950s Chevy parked out front. Heavy plate glass art deco door as you walk into the lobby reminded me of my youth.... More

Wow, pleasantly surprised. The people who work here really like their jobs, very friendly upon check in and again at breakfast. The room was very nice. Newer furnishings and carpet. Very clean. Breakfast was great. Hot breakfast or cold, plenty to choose from. For the price this place was a deal. There is a closer Best Western to I-44, this... More
